Chickie On Guard #Caturday #TipperAndChickie

HELLO! My name is CHICKIE!

The hoomans had a Christmas, and Poppy brought me home a present. It had a good, strong smell, and it rolled great! He put it on the kitchen table, so I could play robber. But Mommy took it away and said, “Lifesavers are not for kitties!”

I like Poppy best.

But then, Poppy said he was going to take away my tall sitty place!

Tipper: He’s going to do what??
Chickie: Nooooooooo!!!

The sitty thing is the best place inna world!

I had a cunning plan.

We will guard it wif all our lives! I’ll look this way and you look that way.

Meanwhile, Poppy is making a lotta lotta noise in the basement, and every time I go down to help, there’s more boxy, poking-upy stuff down there.

Mommy pets me when I come and tell her I’m getting nervous.

Sometimes, I like Mommy best.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR ANIMALS: Did you ever lose your favorite sitty place?



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

      She’ll like this one when it’s finished. Meanwhile, she’s guarding the old sitty thing like it owes her money.

    Our cats have been enjoying a kitty condo — makeshift style, fashioned with Amazon boxes 😀 I hope Chickie and Tipper like the new sitty thing!

    -grin- I had a feeling Chickie’s Poppy wouldn’t be that mean! So when do we get pics of the new sitty-something-thing?
